South Australian Recruitment Companies

While South Australia doesn’t get as much media interest as QLD and WA get for their mining industries, many people don’t realise that South Australia is where mining in Australia first started (with Silver and Copper).

While there may not be as many jobs on offer, there are still jobs and here is a list of recruitment companies based in South Australia that you can get in contact with.

Please Note:
While we have done the research, you should too! Do not work with companies that expect you to pay them to help you find a job, and if something seems like a scam – it probably is.
